Crazy Saskatchewan Weather!

Well, we hit some crazy weather while out on the highway today.  It was this crazy four minute storm sandwiched between beautiful blue skies.  Just nutty.

Seriously, we were driving along only a couple minutes outside Saskatoon.  Blue skies, fluffy white clouds.  Then BANG.  Dark skies, and visibility of only two or three feet ahead.  We got pulled over just in time for the visibility to clear and for hail to begin pummeling us. Then as quickly as it came on, both the hail and rain lifted.  Blue skies once again.  It was absolutely bizarre.

After the Rain!

I took this picture right after the rain stopped.  You can see the dark clouds lifting as if they’d never been there at all.  Click the link below to see (and hear) the hail.  This photograph (with no rain) was taken only seconds after I stopped shooting video.  Crazy crazy crazy.!/video/video.php?v=421246082352

Gotta love Saskatchewan!  😀
